    That's the attitude!! I guess I don't know of anyone credible who has ever put Gibson into Future Ace category. But to make any judgments based off of two starts is a bit premature. Most have said he can be a solid #3 starter with the makeup and stuff to be a #2. He''ll get 7.5-8.5 k/9 (which is good) but he's a groundball pitcher and some will get through the infield. If he pitches in the middle of the plate, he will get hard. This year is about getting him experience, learning and adjusting. Don't make too much about anything at this point.

    At least you gave him 2 games. You have to admit Thielbar looks like a Cy Young candidate though.

    I want Gibson to succeed, duh, twins fan, but what really bothers me, is the constant downplaying of Deduno, the Twins by far best Starter, and the constant bring Gibson up, he will be Twins number one next year..., please...are we watching the same players?

    Provost says about Deduno after giving up 3 runs to the Yankees, pitching perfect 3 innings and playing first base most of the day, that Deduno wasnt that bad..WASNT THAT BAD? We would take that performance anytime, any game...

    So go Mr. Gibson, you nor most people have the talent of Deduno, but Im certainly pulling for you..and hey, a good number three, is definitely an asset,
    heres hoping...
